It’s never too early to start learning 21st century design skills, and Adobe Photoshop is an industry standard software that is extremely useful and fun! Students will be introduced to Photoshop by creating artwork including digital collage, digital painting, and a simple looping animation. The selection tools, brushes and layering techniques will be explored through these hands-on projects. They will use a mouse (clicking and dragging) to access the program’s tools rather than using their fingers.
Students will need a laptop, with a mouse, Photoshop CC (adobe.com), and access to Google Drive so that the instructor can share files with them and they can back up their work.
(Please note: Chromebook does not work. It is only internet-based and will not run Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud which needs to be installed onto the actual computer.)
